Better if you get USB HP printer to use with it. The only way to use that what you have it to get a printer server that supports parallel cable and connect the print server to your router using Ethernet LAN cable.

I have a HP Pavilion dv6700 special/limited edition. I start it up, and all lights turn on and i can hear the computer is on. But the screen is black. And then I hear a beeping sound three times. First...


Hello

OK, depending on the bois version you have, the problem is either your ram modules, or your video card.

I will suggest that you start by taking out the ram module and see if the beeping persists.

If not, you will need to buy new ram.

Hope this can steer you in the right direction.

Connecting a new computer to an older printer


Does this Laptop have a docking station? If so then on the back of the docking station should be a parallel port.

Is you laptop connected to a router/firewall/switch? Then you can get a device that will make the printer become networkable and connect to you firewall switch...this unit is called HP jetdirect. It will make your parralel printer become more useful and connected to the network.

Problem is the printer is "old school" and the laptop is "new school", the JetDirect will bridge this...
